@peterson, I read on your profile that you are a hiker. I like to hike, and am struggling with a heal problem and have a 2 week follow-up with podiatrist this week. The Hoka sandals have brought me some relief for daily activities, but the pain is still not remedied for walking. I am hesitant to replace my walking shoes until after my appointment. In preparation for my appointment, I have a few questions that I would like to ask you: Do you wear the Hoka shoes for walking? or for everyday activities?
